Chen Guangbiao’s explains that the main inventor of this canned fresh air is himself and that there is a computer microchip within each pull-top can. While filling the can with air, the operator need only swing his hand three times, and when the air is swung into the can reaches the required target, the computer chip reacts and automatically seals the can, with the oxygen within each can being equivalent to 5 oxygen tanks in the hospital, similar to compressed biscuits [hardtack].

Comments from Sina:

新浪山西晋城 山鹰:

Chen Guangbiao, you should really learn more about lead-acid batteries before coming out to put on this kind of show! Lead-acid batteries doesn’t affect the environment, what affects the environment is because we don’t have a robust manufacturing and recycling system! You’re too lacking in technical knowledge!

新浪江苏泰州 xhdngyg:

Electric scooters, the most practical form of transportation for the ordinary common people, why did you smash them?

新浪广东深圳 wellmaker:

Well done!! Let those stupid high officials see how terribly they have ruined China’s environment!

新浪广东江门SINGLE3100: (responding to above)

It shows that China’s environment has been so terribly polluted that has reached the point where it jeopardizes human survival!
It [this publicity stunt] is a warning, a mockery/satire!!!
